    Are you attending a Windows 7 Launch Party?

    The night is almost here. I hope my Windows 7 Launch Party guests aren’t expecting much. I mean, they’re welcome to go hang out on my Windows 7 computer and putz around on it. I don’t care, but I’m going to be drinking some refreshing High Life far away from that wretched device. I only have a few people coming to my launch party and they will all be leaving with a gift… Read More

    Windows 7 Launch Party hosts: Are you planning on actually having the party?

    If you’re a Windows 7 Launch Party host like me, you’ve probably gone through a wave of emotion. First you were probably stoked that you were chosen, you then probably had fun with everyone else over the awful launch party videos and hand-outs, and then last week, you probably got the sweet party kit that contains a special version of Windows 7 Ultimate. But are you now dreading… Read More

    Unboxing the Windows 7 Launch Party kit

    My Windows 7 Launch Party kit is finally here! As you may recall, I was selected to host one of these Windows 7 Launch Parties. I’m so lucky. Oh, man, look at all this stuff. Streamers, balloons, party bags, playing cards, a puzzle, and a poster!!! Microsoft sure knows how to throw a party. Add some jello shots and a beer bong, and this party should be crazy. Oh, and the fact that I… Read More

  • Classic video: Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry show off Windows 95

    FYI: If you’re coming to my Windows 7 Launch Party on October 22, be prepared to watch this video and learn how Windows 95 is “basically goof-proof.” Drinking game suggestions? Read More

    The Windows 7 Launch Party packs ship out to hosts

    Great news, fellow Windows 7 Launch Party hosts. Your party pack should arrive soon. Be on the lookout for a UPS tracking email. Mine’s set to arrive this Friday. Now, all I need is some clever party games. And a few guests, too. Maybe I should watch the instructional videos again for some tips. Read More

  • The Windows 7 launch party video was not an isolated incident! They have party favors!

    The Windows 7 launch party video was not an isolated incident! They have party favors!


    It was only two weeks ago that the Windows 7 Launch Party video cut a burning swath across the internet, leaving only scorched sensibilities and a feeling that you’d lost something fundamental never to be regained. We lied to ourselves then that it couldn’t be more than a blip on the radar, a PR pitch gone awry and furtively uploaded, unfit for human consumption as it was &mdash… Read More

    I was selected to host a Windows 7 Launch Party!


    Guys, I’m really excited. I’m stoked that Microsoft choose me, ME, to host a Windows 7 Launch Party. That’s right, lame ol’ Burns is going to host a Windows 7 party. I just got my confirmation email saying I was a finalist and to head over to HouseParty.com ASAP. Once I filled out all the steps to create a party webpage and invite my guests, I got the email above… Read More

  • WTF was Sony Thinking?! NSFW

    The picture after the jump isn’t CrunchGear’s holiday party. That was Sony’s idea of a good time for the launch of God Of War II. The body of a dead goat was packed with guts that guests were invited to enjoy. Seriously, what moron was in charge of this party? Playstation Magazine was set to run the entire spread until they finally came to their senses and realized what a… Read More

  • Where Was Our Invite To The Sidekick ID Launch Party?

    I guess our invitation was lost in the mail. The Sidekick ID we all love to hate is getting some much needed PR from the likes of Kelly Monaco and Taryn Manning. Nothing says, “Buy Me”, like a starlets interchangeable skins. The picture alone makes me want to buy one. The launch party wasn’t at Chuck-E-Cheese, but there were some hotties. Even Jenna Jameson took some time out… Read More
